Pirates 4 Haiti 4 Ever

The Somali pirates are, apparently, going to send large donations to Haiti. For reference, their estimated income for last year was $60 million.

Pirating is recession-proof apparently.

I hope they don't send it by boat.

Hearts and minds, people.

But that's before taxes.

Blargh. Dude, there are people in Somalia that could use that money just as much as the Haitians could. I appreciate the sentiment and all, but seriously man, build roads and schools and farms and shit in Somalia first.

And, um, stop funding Al-Shabaab. Please.

A story like this makes me really curious about the social structure of pirates. When a pirate does a thing like represent himself as a central leader and make statements addressed to national governments, how do people know he's the real deal? can "the Somali pirates" be treated as a centralised, organized entity?
